2011--the first entire year since I was 21 in which I was not married. What did it bring?

6 books on Kindle and Nook (click Sharon Day books button on the left)
Trips to many abandoned places, ghost towns, haunted locations, and ghost hunts
Interviews for newspapers
A contract signed for a book going to print in April
My first dates since I was 16!
A TV news interview
A blogger virtual zombie walk event online
Participating in a zombie walk with 4000 people
Loads of new friends - a real tribe of supportive people
Growing the blog
Doing a radio show online
My first Bigfoot hunt
A vacation at a resort
Lots of new ghost hunting opportunities

Oh, hell, this is only a portion of the list!

My plans for 2012?

To be regularly published in print. I have lots of upcoming books:

"They Come Out At Night (A Book To Read By Candlelight)"
"Spirit Vessels: Why Some Buildings Are Haunted"
"Growing Up With Ghosts" - The story of growing up at Aspen Grove told by me and my family members.
"Zombie Housewives of the Apocalypse (1960s)"
"Paranormal Geeks" (check out the button on the right hand side of the blog if you want to help me by letting me interview you anonymously for the book)
*Several fiction books including a SciFi and paranormal romances

I expect to grow the blog with a lot more news in the field and new research, some humorous pieces as always, adding in a lot more video taken on trips and in crazy places you may never want to visit in person. I'd like to try my hand at some 5-minute documentaries. I also would like to grow other paranormal realms on the blog from PSI to horror, Bigfoot to UFOs. I hope to conduct some interesting studies in 2012 in the realm of the paranormal and I will be sharing those regularly. Generally, I've come to know that you can't predict what I'll do next. Even I don't know! So, hold on tight and continue to be the best damn tribe of friends and inquisitive minds a woman could ever know.

Thanks for always being with me. The voyage is crazy and wild, scary and exciting, but I always feel safe knowing that y'all wish me the best. I promise to continue to pay that forward.


  1. I am very excited about all the plans we have for 2012. Lots of wonderful things happened in 2011 but the next year looks to be even more exciting. We are working on books together which are going to be published and we have a few awesome trips planned. Here's to a wonderful and prosperous new year!

  2. Happy New Year! Happy to follow your cool blog.

  3. You are awesome Autumn. I'm also excited about 2012, it's going to be an interesting year! Happy New Year!

  4. I'm so happy that this has been such a life affirming year for you! That is more than some people can get done in a lifetime! I'm on the verge of buying up all of your books for myself, my daughter is a fan! She's a ghost nut!

    You're doing great and we all love you for your strength and wish you many more great opportunities.

  5. Thanks sweetie! If your daughter wants to answer the questions for my "Paranormal Geeks" book, just email at ghosthuntingtheories at gmail. I am looking for as many anonymous people to quiz as possible. I'm thrilled you will be reading my books. I'm hoping to put the abandoned book into print this year because the photos need to be in a nice print book. There will likely be a humorous book or too coming up, perhaps one based on Sex and the Single Ghost Hunter about how hard it is to find quirky interesting guys.

  6. Sounds like you had an adventurous year ! Blessings and success for 2012 :)

  7. Ooo Sex and the single ghost hunter that's awesome! I'm excited! I'll ask Nora.
